Go seek a love like this

Go seek a love like this, if you truly live.

Or else remain the slave of time.

And whatever state you seek,

Your lips so dry, must always drink,

Drink up and up,

Till dry lipped still, you reach the source.

For all your skills here given wealth,

Your quest, your handicrafts and works,

Don’t they begin in thought,

Begin beside the river?

Jalaluddin al Balkhi Rumi
